BELLEVILLE — A restrained passenger is suing an ambulance service provider after he was allegedly injured in a collision.

Madison County resident Jeremy Hicks filed a complaint on Dec. 15 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against O'Fallon Shiloh Emergency Medical Services, alleging the ambulance service provider breached its duty to operate its vehicle in a careful manner.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 11, 2015, he was a restrained passenger in the defendant's ambulance traveling on Interstate 64 when the vehicle crashed.

As a result of defendant's negligence, he alleges, the ambulance was involved in a collision that caused him to sustain injuries resulting in pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.

The plaintiff alleges the defendant's driver operated the vehicle at a speed greater than reasonable and failed to concentrate on driving.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in a sum in excess of $50,000, plus costs of suit.

He is represented by Jeremy A. Gogel of The Gogel Law Firm in St. Louis.
